Customer Question

I have a P0305 misfire code on a 2002 dodge dakota. I can rundown what I've done if u think u have ideas.
Plugs and wires, distributor rotor, manifold gasket all done. Fuel injectors checked, compression ok.
Was told engine computer may be issue. Ordered a vin programmed remanned computer and installed.
Ran 100 miles then check engine light back on again with same code, so I returned the computer and went back to the
Old computer. Mechanic ran sea foam through several times. It seemed to help some. Check engine light would stay on for 1-200 miles, go off for 1-200 miles and keep going on and off like that for a while. Now on all the time.
